(Pocket-lint) – Netflix has introduced a new feature: The ability to manually delete shows and movies from your “continue watching” row.
Here’s how – plus everything you need to know.
What is the ‘continue watching’ row?
Most streaming services have a version of Netflix’s “continue watching” row. It’s one of the first things you see when you open up Netflix on your TV, phone, or laptop. In an age when there are millions of things to stream across dozens of streaming apps, a “continue watching” row helps you to easily resume movies, shows, and documentaries you previously started and need to finish.
Why is this feature important?
You can finally get rid of the movies, shows, and documentaries that you never finished binge-watching and have forever cluttered up the “continue watching” row of your Netflix user interface. It’s basically giving you and everyone else a little more control over what you see when you first open Netflix, and it allows you to hide things you potentially started, didn’t like, and never want to see again.
When will it be available?
The new feature is already available on Netflix’s web, mobile, and TV apps.
How to tidy up your Netflix ‘continue watching’ row
To remove a title, all you have to do is select it in the row and scroll down to the new “Remove from Continue Watching” option. Select once to remove it; select twice to quickly undo the removal.
